Drug Uses Ponstel is used for the relief of moderate pain and for the treatment of menstrual pain. It might also be used by your doctor in other cases as he deems fit. It is a non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Usage Following the dosage instructions of your doctor is the best way to use any medication. If you are unsure or do not remember the instructions then you may read the medicine label for more detailed information. You may choose to take Ponstel with a meal or an antacid to avoid an upset stomach. You can also take it with a glass of milk. Missed Dose Despite your best attempts at remembering, if you still miss out on a dose, then take it as soon as you remember about it. But keep in mind that you will have to adjust your next dose by spacing it out by 4 to 5 hours. If this is not possible, then the best thing to do would be to skip the missed dose and continue with your normal dosage schedule. Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects. Storage Store Ponstel at room temperature. Overdose An overdose of Ponstel may have adverse effects that require immediate medical attention. Contact the nearest emergency poison control center immediately if you notice effects like drowsiness, lack of energy, nausea, stomach toxicity and vomiting.
